EXCLUSIVELY DEVOTED & FOCUSED ON VENOUS DISEASE
Spider veins are one of the most common vein problems that our vein specialist treats on a regular basis. Spider veins are characterized by thin clusters of red, purple, or blue veins that appear on the ankles, calves, and thighs. Spider veins can also appear on the face and chest due to sun damage.
Spider veins are more prevalent than varicose veins. In fact, the vast majority of people with spider veins do not have varicose veins. Conversely, the pressure associated with varicose veins often leads to the development of spider vein clusters.
In addition to these physical signs of leg vein disorder, you may also experience other symptoms such as muscle cramps (mostly at night), swollen feet and ankles, pain and heaviness in the legs, burning sensation in the legs, and even lower leg ulceration, skin dermatitis, and skin discoloration in advanced cases.
Fortunately, our vein specialist in Los Angeles offers effective, safe, and painless spider vein treatment options. On your first visit, we will perform a comprehensive evaluation to establish the extent of your venous problem, and then suggest one of these treatments:
While visible leg veins are not life threatening, it is still important to restore healthy circulation to your legs to manage the symptoms and for cosmetic improvement. Your Camarillo vein doctor will access the health of your leg veins using visual inspection and ultrasound diagnostic tests to determine whether medical intervention is necessary.
A Venous Duplex Ultrasound exam is used to map the normal and abnormal veins in your legs, which helps to determine the cause, extent, and severity of the problem. Those with a family history of blood clots may require additional tests.
There are different treatments for visible leg veins depending on the nature and severity of the disorder. While ‘lifestyle’ adjustments such as walking, raising your legs regularly during the day, wearing loose clothing and flat shows, taking dietary supplements and medications help to manage the symptoms, their effects are short-lived and do not necessarily prevent the progression of underlying venous conditions.
Spider veins are generally harmless and painless. If your spider veins have symptoms, or if you are concerned about their appearance, you should schedule a consultation with your Vein Specialist to discuss your options either by contacting us online here or by calling us @ 1.844.77.VEINS.
